Emperor Akihito visits Japanese troop shrine in Philippines

Japanese Emperor Akihito offered flowers Friday at a shrine built in the Philippines for Japanese soldiers killed during Japan’s brutal World War II occupation of the Southeast Asian nation. The 82-year-old monarch and his wife, Empress Michiko, bowed twice while laying white bouquets at a table in front of the grey marble shrine, located in the lake town of Caliraya about three hours’ drive from Manila. The imperial couple later spoke and shook hands with relatives of Japanese soldiers killed in the Philippines at the end of the half-hour ceremony.
